Much of the background music was originally used in Bride of Frankenstein (1935). Also, the song that played in the background during the sequence recapping the previous chapter's events was the theme for The Invisible Man (1933). See more »
This movie picks up the action from Flash Gordon as they return to Earth from Mongo (ie: They are still returning from Mongo). At the end of that first movie, they took off for Earth in Zarkov's Space ship but they are now in a Mango Space Ship (with the nose ray gun). The cliffhanger of Chapter 1 has one of the engines shot off the ship and at the start of Chapter 2 (after the cliffhanger resolution) Ming looks at the engine and says "It is from the ship they stole from me".

The Clay People! Who can forget that sequence in Chapter 2 when they first appear. And all to that great Waxman music. Still a good serial to watch, even in these days. Good photography, OK acting, polished script but somehow the original 1936 serial was superior. And kudos again to that great tracked musical score.
